1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
To some degree, I related to her because her personality is so much like mine. We both are kind shy, hate attention, awkward with our Dad's, take care of people older than us (instead of my mom, it happened to be all 3 of my sisters), and put others before ourselves. [a side note, I hate talking about myself... it makes me feel like I'm boasting about how good of a person I am. Sorry]
But I can't really relate to the clumsiness to the point of disabled. Plus, I'm a proud Washingtonian (WOOT WOOT!) and I love the rain.
2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
Renee seemed like the... okay I can't believe I'm about to say this... but she made the impression of the typical MILF. Kind of like the mom in John Tucker Must Die, but older and not trying to date Bella's schoolmates. And more naive.
I loved Charlie right from the beginning. He has a soft spot in my heart, because the relationship between him and Bella is similar to my dad and me. Plus, he got her a sweet truck.
3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
Jessica= nice. But not totally there for Bella, like a fake friend, you know?
Eric=Annoying! But his character made me laugh. I know so many boys like him... kind of creepy, but not intentionally.
Mike= probably my favorite one of Bella's friends. But why did he have to make everything awkward?
4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
Intrigued. Anyone who is described like a angel always intrigues me. Plus if anyone stared at me who was that amazing, I would want to talk to them.
5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
Honestly? I was pissed. When i read, I put myself as the main character. I wanted Edward to know right from the get go that he was in love with me. But when he acted like I was a pariah, I was angry. What had I done?
6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
Let's put it this way, I wanted to keep reading, but I was able to put it down.
